Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Samson was signed by the Carolina Hurricanes on July 2, 2007. During the 2009–10 season, Samson made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes and assisted on a Rod Brind'Amour goal on his first shift against the Nashville Predators on January 7, 2010.[1]

He scored his first NHL goal on January 10, 2012 against Sergei Bobrovsky of the Philadelphia Flyers.[2]

On July 5, 2013, Samson left the Hurricanes organization as a free agent and signed a one-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets.[3] In his single season in 2013–14 within the Jets organization, Samson was assigned to AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps.

On July 10, 2014, Samson agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[4] During the 2014–15 season, on January 6, 2015, he was released from his contract to join EHC Biel of the Swiss National League A. Samson recorded 1 goal and 7 assists in 26 games with the Syracuse Crunch, a major performance drop form the 27 goal, 29 assist season he had in the 2013–14 AHL season.[5]

On June 2, 2015, Samson continued in Europe to sign a one-year contract in Germany with EHC München of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He captured the German championship with the München team in 2016 and left the club afterwards, signing a deal with fellow DEL team Schwenninger Wild Wings in July 2016.[6] In the 2016–17 season, Samson played amongst the top two scoring lines with the Wild Wings, besting his previous year with 13 goals and 24 points in 51 games. On March 3, 2017, it was announced that Samson would leave the club as a free agent.[7]

In May 2017 Samson signed with the Vienna Capitals of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL) for the 2017/2018 season.[8][9]
